Emma Viskic recommends
Hangman (2018)
(Timothy Blake, book 1)
Jack Heath
"Jack Heath’s writing grabs you by the throat, gnaws on your bones, and washes it all down with a hefty dose of funny. Sick, twisted, violent, and oh so good. In Timothy Blake, Heath has created a one-of-a-kind character. I hope."
You Don't Know Me (2019)
Sara Foster
"You Don't Know Me proves yet again that Sara Foster is a writer at the top of her game. A compelling story of secrets, lies, and heartache."
The Long Shadow (2020)
Anne Buist
"In The Long Shadow, Buist continues to impress with her smart brand of psychological thriller. A brooding story about small town secrets and the lies we tell to protect ourselves."
Shore Leave (2020)
(Frank Swann, book 4)
David Whish-Wilson
"A gritty and insightful story of greed, family and revenge from a master of hard-boiled crime."
The Stoning (2021)
(Detective Sergeant George Manolis, book 1)
Peter Papathanasiou
"The Stoning is a police-procedural with a difference; a gritty, menacing novel with a terrific sense of place. A highly relevant examination of prejudice and racism in an outback town. Detective Sergeant George Manolis is a great new addition to the Australian crime scene."
After You Were Gone (2023)
Vikki Wakefield
"Elegantly written and utterly chilling. A dark and twisting novel of psychological suspense that will have you turning pages and checking your locks."
